Marcin Olak Trio LIVE!

Well, I didn’s see it comin’. Just one phone call in the morning – and here it is. Marcin Olak Trio, performing live again, the same day. With Maciek Szczyciński on bass and Krzysztof Szmańda on drums. Hope you enjoy.

I’d like to thank Pałac w Radziejowicach for the invitation and Music Machines for audio and video.

Spontaneous Chamber Music on Ad Libitum Festival!

I’m happy I’m able to invite to our concert. Daaaamn, I missed it so much, thank you COVID-19…

On 16.10 Spontaneous Chamber Music – Anna Gadt, Annemie Osborne, Patryk Zakrocki and me – will perform on the Ad Libitum Festival, IMHO one of the best places to listen to improvised music.

The Festival takes place in Warsaw, Poland, but we’ll probably be online, too. Take a listen, if you like. More info on Ad Libitum website.

16.10, 19:00 – Spontaneous Chamber Music, CSW Zamek Ujazdowski, Sala Laboratorium, Warszawa.

Music From Non-Existent Movies – LIVE!

Today, at 21:00 I’ll play for you an improvised set with Music From Non-Existent movies. It will be a unique concert – Anna Gadt joins me this time, I’s soooo lucky! She’s a brilliant artist, improviser, singer, composer… and a great person – if you don’t know her albums, be sure to listen. More information about Anna can be found here.

One more thing – we decided to base our improvisations on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. This is the milestone document which says that we are all equal. That we have the same rights. That no one can be illegally deprived of these rights, freedom, or dignity … Now, when nationalism begins to revive again, when people are excluded on the basis of their beliefs, sexual orientation, when we are so divided – now we want to recall this text: “all people are born equal… ”. This declaration was proclaimed by the United Nations in 1948. After the war. So that there would be no more wars …

Music From Non-Existent Movies – live at last!

Well… This COVID-19 thing’s hit us all. I miss concerts, I miss meeting you, I miss playing live. And finally, courtesy of the Polish Ministry of Culture, I’ll be able to play something live. For the first time since the premiere of my “Music From Non-Existent Movies”, I’ll play those tunes live. I’ll play in my dungeon, in my studio, and anyone who wants to, will be able to watch it live. Listen. Participate.

Music From Non-Existent Movies

I’ll play on 15.07 at 21:00. Such a strange moment, in the middle of the week, in the middle of summer. In the middle.

I wonder how it’ll sound… It’s improvised music, after all, played once and never repeated. Well…

Music From Non Existent Movies is only available on my Bandcamp, only digital version. Everything is digital now.

Streaming will be available on my YouTube channel and the concert link will be available soon. Stay tuned!

Imagine Nation @ Podlasie Jazz Festival!

Here we go again! On October 19. we’ll play on Podlasie Jazz Festiwal. I decided to play Imagine Nation there – tunes I’ve written for last year’s Jazz Jamboree. Those themes were originally written for quintet, with voice and another guitar. This time I’ve made trio arrangements, hope you’ll like them. I’ll play with great musicians and friends, Wojtek Pulcyn on bass and Sebastian Frankiewicz on drums. Come and check it up!

Spontaneous Chamber Music – Patryk Zakrocki & me – just have played at Skład Butelek (WAW, PL). We’ve been lucky to have Basia Żach, great graphic artist, listening to our performance. That’s how she sees us.

Better check up her Instagram, it’s worth it!
